and a critique you hear of this president from both the left and the right. peggy noonan said that on "meet the press" and moveon.org is saying that now. we elected a liberal president and where is that guy? but i think stay the course is a broader term than that. i mean, i don't give advice to presidents and they wouldn't listen to me if i did, but stay the course means, be yourself. the other phrase from that area was, you know, let reagan be reagan. this was used by so-called pragmatists in the white house. people who were getting the same grief rahm is getting now to let reagan be his inner-conservative self. but reagan was telling his people, i've got to get me a deal. reagan was a very pragmatic president. so if you think of stay the course in a broader way, i don't think president obama has to be an ideologue. >> the stay the course mantra back then was, stick to this program i'm on, it's going to pay dividends. but obama has something different to deal with that reagan didn't. reagan had a democratic congress to beat up on whenever he needed that boogiemen. he had to work with them,

about this, peggy noonan writing in "wall street journal," she says this -- she's worked in a republican white house as a speechwriter, a very smart woman -- does she have a point there? >> she's a have good writer and everything, yeah, if they shut the government down and try to impeach him, it probably will help him, but the democrats i don't think the president -- you know, the democrats are going to try to do as well as they can in the next election. we'll probably lose some seats. president reagan lost seats in, but the predictions were that you were going to lose more seats, if i remember. >> i have to wonder, james, whether, despite the fact that you got your president reelected in '96, whether you wouldn't have preferred we had not taken over for congress and you had your own majority for the remaining six years. >> on election night in november of 1994, i didn't go, wow, just what we needed. no one wants to lose an election, i promise you. >> there's still plenty of time between now and november, though economists still say, tony, as you well know, that given the population grow

"the financial times"looks at the polling. ms.coakley has 53% of the boat. mr. brown is ahead by 4%. i expect coakley to win but mr. brown has created a lot of excitement. democrats are clearly nervous. the national democratic committees have added at least $1 million to atcoakley's campaign coffers. we'll talk about this for the next 45 minutes or so. our twitter address it is twitter.com/cspan first up is new york on our democrats line. caller: thank you for cspan and my heart goes out to the tragic situation in haiti. this is no time for partisan politics for republicans looking to pounce on the president. my expectation is that they will continue to do so.
